Merchant Adventurer Exterior Mockups

First look at our new merchant adventurer mockup.

Barley Hall Mockups

Located just off Stonegate, Barley hall is a faithful reconstruction of a wealthy medieval townhouse, discovered by chance during rennovation work to a much later building on the site. We’re still not quite sure how we’re going to integrate it into the main game, but as one of the very few faithful medieval reconstructions in the country no medieval game in York could be complete without it -Its also been a chance to fine tune the time of day / weather effects, everything from glorious summer sunshine to a freezing snowstorm!
